SUBIC, Zambales  — A man, who had confessed his drug habits to the police, was shot dead as he slept in his house on Monday (Aug. 15).

Police said Dominguez was among the 1,450 confessed drug dependents who surrendered to authorities here under the government’s Oplan Tokhang, a nationwide anti-drug campaign that has been encouraging drug dealers and users to voluntarily surrender to the police.

Citing witnesses’ accounts, Cruz said the gunmen barged into Dominguez’s house and shot the victim.
